I have seen many people testify in Social Security Disability, injury cases, and Work Comp cases.
It is a nerve wracking experience for most people.
Here is the best way to approach this important moment for you and your case.
Remember that the Judge is a person just like you are.
You are inclined to help someone who is polite, nice and honest.
Make it easy for the Judge to want to help you.
So be sure to be early for your hearing.
Wear clean clothes. They do not have to be fancy but be presentable.
Answer questions in a believable and friendly way. Do not fight or argue with the Judge.
Give the Judge a picture of how your daily activities are impacted as a result of your injury.
You can do certain things, however be ready to explain your limitations and how your condition has changed you since the injury.
Remember if give the Judge all the reasons to like you the trial will go much smoother for you.
